The shoe is dominated by smooth full-grain leather uppers that stretch from the heel to the midsection. A cloudy semi-translucent overlay coats the toebox, showing some of the multi-colored speckles of the recycled material embedded beneath — 24 percent PU recycled synthetic leather. The rest of the uppers have been kept clean and minimal: a tonal tongue tag, laces, Swoosh and heel counter. All of these features are set atop a full-length Crater Foam midsole, made with a blend of 11 percent Nike Grind Rubber and standard Nike foams to maximize sustainability.
Nike’s Air Force 1 Crater “Summit White” is currently available on atmos’ website for $113 USD.
